2.  Mash cooked sweet potato in a large bowl. Put in eggs, mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Put in coconut milk, 1 cup brown sugar and butter, mix until combined.

3.  Put in the dry ingredients until evenly moistened. Put in the raisins and remaining rum in the small bowl. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan, the batter should be very moist and liquid.

4.  For the topping: Combine coconut, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Sprinkle coconut mixture on top of the pudding cake. Bake the cake until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 70 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Use a knife around the edge of the pan and gently remove the side ring. Let cool at room temperature on a wire rack, gently remove the bottom of the spring form pan, for 2 hours or more, until cool completely.
